This was a rose printed for my wife as part of her Valentine's Day gifts.

This model can still use some work as the polygons for the petals should be thicken a bit for better prints. I will try to find time to make those fixes and update this model in the future.

In the meantime, enjoy some roses :)


I've only got one test of each flower for this model. the rose_open was printed at 100% fill, the stem was at 50% fill, and the rose_closed was printed at 10% fill. there isn't much difference exterior wise, the gcode combines some of the pedals and makes them thicker than the original model.

I haven't tired printing the leaves yet. It will probably require some support.

the stem and the flower i super glued together. just a dab in the center.

This looks terrible, don't print it

It doesn't work for me-- open rose prints out as nothing more than a cylinder in the middle. Using Slic3r/pronterface. I am guessing Slic3r has a problem with something in the STL? Using 3 perimeters, 25% infill, nothing else out of the ordinary. Anyone else having the same problem?

so cool, the model looks fine, looks like your extrusion that is trouble, if you use cura, 'steps per e' needs to be higher

love the rose =) cheers!

thanks for the tip! I love how fast Cura slices to gcode, but unfortunately i'm running a T-O-M and the axis are reveresed when i try to print the cura gcode. Any suggestions on how i can invert the x and y axis in the setting?

Hmm, Thingomatic? Maybe try http://airtripper.com/1145/marlin-firmware-v1-basic-configuration-set-up-guide/http://airtripper.com/1145/mar... for some idea of firmware settings, axis invert probably there somewhere

very beautiful!
